“Pretty wooded sites with beautiful lake access and convenient to town”

Reviewed Oct 07, 2018

Overall Rating

First, yeah, the trains are loud when they come thru, but honestly, it hasn’t really bothered us. We were in the 1-11 loop which is farthest away, tho the campground is pretty small. Maybe 20 sites?

Best things about it are the stunning Whitefish Lake and access to town (more like 5 mins I’d say). Lake would be great to paddleboard or kayak (we haven’t because it’s Oct and 40 degrees out) and town is very cute with shops, breweries and a library. Kalispell is only 25 mins or so away with larger stores if needed. The Whitefish Trail is just up the road with easy short loops for kids or longer hikes/bikes for the more ambitious.

Montana Coffee Traders on Central is great. McKenzie River Pizza easy with a large group and/or kids. The gas station across from Safeway on Hwy 93 has propane fill and a free dump behind the convenience store. Note, no dump at the CG, but easy access to water spigots, clean bathrooms and pay showers.

“Good for boaters”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2017

Overall Rating

The Whitefish State Park is about 10 minutes outside of downtown Whitefish and is located on Whitefish Lake. It has a nice swim beach and a boat launch. There are also showers which cost $3 for 6 minutes. The campground hosts were welcoming. Those are the positives.

The main negative is the train tracks that are right along the edge of the campground. On the Friday evening that we stayed there the trains came through approximately 3 times an hour and were loud enough in the campsites along the tracks that you could not carry on a conversation while the trains were passing. We walked through the campground to see if the spots away from the tracks were any better, and the noise was still loud even in the sites further form the tracks. Several trains came through in the middle of the night. We got in with no reservation on a prime weekend because the trains were loud enough that someone with a reservation abandoned their site just before sundown.

The campsites are fairly close together with little privacy, but they were clean with good fire rings and picnic tables.

The bathrooms and showers were clean with running hot water and there was access to a water spigot to fill water containers.
